Detroit Pistons Team Info
The Pistons have a long storied history of winning. It all started when the team first broke into the National Basketball Association back in 1958. The team only finished the season with a 33-39 record but they did earn a berth into the playoffs. In the first round the Pistons swept the opposition in the first round 2-0. In the second round the team didn't have as much success when they fell 4-1 and ended their first NBA postseason run. A little more recently, during the '80s, the team developed a little bit of a mean streak. When this streak turned into the entire team's persona the team was dubbed with the nickname of “The Bad Boys.” They were led by their two Hall of Fame guards Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars. They were also supported by unforgettable role players like Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman, Vinnie Johnson, Mark Aguirre and John Salley. The Pistons didn't take anything from anyone. They would bump and bruise and played a style of basketball that was unpopular among the other teams but worked. It was most evident that this style of basketball could get the job done when the team went to three straight NBA Finals and won two of them. The most exciting series the team played in during that run came during the 1988 Eastern Conference Finals. The series went six games with the Pistons coming out on top but it could've very easily been the other way if a shot or two falls since all six of the games were decided by eight points or less. The Pistons then went on to fall to the “Showtime” 4-3 and lost the last two games by a combined margin of four points.
